Must Visit Places : Tian Tan Buddha on Lantau Island, Hong Kong

December 1, 2011 by

No trip to Hong Kong would be complete without a visit to the Giant Buddha which sits serenely atop Ngong Ping plateau amid the spectacular mountain scenery of Lantau Island.

The majestic figure of the seated Buddha was cast in China and took 12 years to complete. It was unveiled in December 1993 amid deeply religious ceremonies.Visitors can climb more than 200 steps to reach the platform where the Buddha is seated.
